Patience. Lao Tzu’s “Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles, and the water is clear?” What a wonderful definition of patience!
Yes, I need to learn to “adopt the pace of nature” because “my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety.”
Thanks Wendy for choosing three quotes about patience.
“Adopt the pace of nature;
her secret is patience.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When I run after ehat I think I want,
my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety;
if I sit in my own place of patience,
what I need flows to me,
and without pain.”
“Do you have patience to wait until your mud settles,
and the water is clear?
Can you remain unmoving until the right action arrives by itself?
~ Lao Tzu (Toa Te Ching)
